keeps talking about. huge military cutbacks and the pentagon may have to lay off as many as 6,000 mistresses. that's what they're saying. >> we need to talk about the fiscal cliff but i'm dying to ask you about this scandal because it's all anyone is talking about. >> yeah. this sex scandal is all anyone in washington can talk about. i wonder why the country is in financial ruin. >>> the late night comedians had some fun with it, that looming fiscal cliff is serious business. with taxes set to rise on all americans starting january 1st, along with massive budget cuts, all of which could push the economy back into a recession. on friday, president obama and congressional leaders sat down to start negotiations about how to avoid that cliff and came out sounding optimistic. >> and i believe that we can do this and avert the fiscal cliff that is right in front of us today. >> we've already been through it before. so on friday i went to the capitol to ask house leader nancy pelosi how realistic it is that we'll get a deal done. leader pelosi, you all came out of the meeting with th
of where we were at, made it very difficult for us to fight. >> reporter: it turns out that a pentagon investigation later concluded by mid-2009, there was no tactical or strategic value to the outpost. but by then, so many had paid the ult price, including the name sake of the camp, lieutenant ben keating, a gung-ho former president of his college young republicans and son of baptist ministers. keating was killed in 2006. these are the special men and women that make up our armed services. so, today, as we think about all those who served, and those we have lost, including the eight killed that horrible october day, think also about those left behind. the children who will never know their fathers and mothers, in the name of protecting you and me. >> as you wrote, jake, uncommon valor. >> reporter: it really is uncommon. and i've been covering the war in afghanistan, and iraq, from the comfort of the north lawn of the white house. but it wasn't until i started researching this book, going to afghanistan, talking to troops, their families, their widows, their grieving moms, that i real
for sending what the pentagon said were "potentially inappropriate" messages, putting on hold his likely promotion to become the supreme allied commander in europe. >> of course, it weighs on him as much as it weighs on dave petraeus. i believe that dave is very, very sad for what he admitted he did. >> reporter: at the center of this web, jill kelley, the tampa socialite and honorary military ambassador, living near the centcom headquarters where petraeus and allen were once based. officials say it was early this summer that kelley received anonymous e-mails, accusing her of flaunting her friendly relationships with top military brass. the fbi traced those e-mails back to paula broadwell's computer where they discovered the evidence of broadwell's affair with david petraeus. but it doesn't stop there. abc news has learned that general allen also received an anonymous e-mail traced to paula broadwell, painting jill kelley as a seductress. a further look by the fbi into kelley's e-mails revealed hundreds between kelley and general allen, 20,000 to 30,000 pages of communications in all. bu
to the pentagon, do you consider that to be inappropriate for a commander-in-chief when american citizens are under fire? >> well, i do think it is inappropriate. and i also think that the administration had in mind a certain scenario, that they were pushing. the idea, as we saw on five separate appearances by our u.n. ambassador over the weekend where the thesis was that this was a, was after all, a protest that had spun out of control. i think they had bought into a storyline that didn't match the reality on the ground, and it was very hard for them as a consequence to adjust to the fact that it was an al qaeda attack. but occurring on 9/11, it should been obvious to them, and certainly obvious to other consulates in the area that al qaeda was operating and indeed training, not far from the benghazi facility. gregg: congressman, what is the one thing you hope to learn today? >> well, when what i would like to know when the request was made for help who in the chain of command denied that help to our ambassador and to our team there on the ground. gregg: do you have suspicions? >> i do n
appears to have also ensnared his successor in afghanistan. the pentagon has now launched an investigation into, quote, potentially inappropriate e-mails between general allen and jill kelley, the petraeus family friend at the center of this increasingly strange scandal. the fbi has turned over 20,000 to 30,000 pages of documents found during the probe. many are e-mails between allen and kelley sent over the last two years. it was kelley, petraeus' former deputy in tampa, who went to the fbi about threatening e-mails she was receiving. they were eventually traced back to petraeus' biographer, paula broadwell, spurring the investigation that led to the cia director's resignation. meantime, overnight, nearly a dozen federal agents descended on paula broadwell's home. spending 4 1/2 hours going floor to floor, leaving with a desktop computer, cardboard boxes and a briefcase. authorities say broadwell consented to the search. just a few hours earlier "washington post" reporter vernon loeb who spent 16 months working side-by-side with broadwell on her biography of petraeus, told the newspaper's
always wanted to be secretary of state. i'm not sure how that would go over at the pentagon. i mean, when you talk abo someon goi into-- as secretary of state, who maybe doesn't have the experience that some people want. i think on the other side, he certainly has military service-- >> heroic military service. >> he has military service, and that-- that's a great thing because not that many people from that generation do. >> do you have any latest intelligence on the petraeus. >> i don't have any on that. i think we're all on pins and needles. so many shoes dropped this week-- >> oh, my gosh. imel marcos. >> here's what i think we have to watch. if you saw in the last couple of days-- it was tuesday night when we learned about john allen. at 1:00 in the morning this very dramatic press release that came from the airplane of leon panetta flying overseas that upon john allen, the general in charge of the troops in afghanistan, was now under investigation for potentially inappropriate e-mails and communications with jill kelly, who is the tampa socialite-- it's so hard, you really need a flo
